Thank you for the answer about Body Odor but I am still curious if there really is no medical reason that states that the bacteria that causes Body Odor cannot move / rub off from other people’s bodies? Because my body odor changes exactly the same as people who have slept with me.

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically body odor can occur due to the reaction between normal bacteria on the skin (or called the normal flora) and the fluid (sweat) produced by the apocrine glands. These apocrine glands are found in many hairy areas such as in the armpits and around the genitals. Everyone's body odor can indeed vary and factors that can affect it include the food consumed, the environment, gender, the presence of certain diseases, or the presence of certain drugs consumed.


Bacteria that belong to normal flora will be present in everyone's body and will not be transmitted or passed from one person to another. If you experience changes in body odor, it is likely that the effect is not because of the normal flora of bacteria in the body of the person who is sharing the same bed with you, but rather because of other factors, for example the food you eat is the same as the person, the soap you use for clean yourself the same as the person, so that the body odor becomes more or less the same as that person.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
